All of Egmont is a foundation. We have no owners, but a vital commitment to do well and do good. The profits from all our companies are either reinvested in our media or donated to help children and young people at risk.
We give back to the next generation
We support initiatives that help children and young people in Scandinavia. And we have given back to society for more than 100 years; it is a part of our DNA.
Egmont was made into a foundation in 1920. It was the last will of our founder - the entrepreneur Egmont Harald Petersen - that a part of the company's profit should be used on helping children and families in need. At that time, this meant helping poor families. Today, we work to ensure that all young people can have an education and a good life.

The Egmont Foundation is established
The Egmont Foundation puts focus on four target groups: Vulnerable families with small children, dyslexic children and young people, children and young people placed in care, and poor children and families.
Our overall goal is that all young people can complete an education in 2030.
We work to support UN Sustainable Development Goal 4: Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
